It is necessary to tell about the following stage on in more detail.
Track "Tyungur-Inia" widely known track in Altai is one of the most interesting places for mototourism in Russia.
It begins in the isolated valley Uymon, there it is possible to get only on the road of long 400 km.
We managed to find the second mountain track thanks to which it is possible to come into Uymon valley and to leave it by "Tyungur-Inia" track.
This track ("Kulada-Terekta") isn't less difficult than "110 km" track on Baikal, but it is more beautiful.
Now you see the beginning of this track to Uymon valley.

#2 #3 #4 days track "Kulada-Terekta":

I believe that Walter Colebatch rode with these guys a year or two back. That report was much like this one--insane!!!

I'm in for this one--hanging onto my chair.

We come back by asphalt with this Mitas.

They are offroad only tires.
They aren't intended for asphalt but quite for it are suitable.

Helo Pate.
Thx for your promt answer. From what i saw on the oficial website there is no 140/150 with 80/70 at 17. From what i remember from 2010 you had an F800 back then. Where you able to fit 130 on the back ?

End hijack.

Looking forward to see what's happening in your RR.

130 it was used on several travel with F800GS.
If you plan the most part of offroad it is a good choice.
Karoo is worse for off-road.

Howling blizzard rushed outside the tents all night.
It calmed down closer to the morning and we could sleep for an hour. We woke up in the milk fog.



Natural vegetation surrounded us all around.
Crew members reluctantly crawled out of their cosmic night cabins and hung out wet suits in the hope of drying it a little.

The night was 3 degrees hot (37 °F)





While we were preparing breakfast and carried out minor repairs,
the nature was looking for our vanity and decided to thin out clouds.

We found the remains of ALIEN near the camp. Apparently he walked at night on trail of us and was preparing attack action.
But he was exhausted and died in the rocky ford. Not everything in our galaxy is such agile and heroic as WE.






Altay Hunter asks Che not to use his famous "death in the valley" camera.



Pate suggested a short road to the hunter. The hunter went to the specified track with astonished face.
We have not seen him anymore.



We see glimpses of blue sky - it's time to move.

The surface of the alien planet was harmless at first glance, but it harbored many obstacles.









And here at this clearing our path diverged.
I like "honest darling" heroically burst on the track which climbed into the mountains,
and others inattentive members led by Che went on a flat valley. What can I say,
at first I thought that everything would be easy. But a couple of drops on the roots changed my opinion.
Radio contact was stable and it gave me some extra confidence in my solitary voyage.





Having got out on the ridge, I stopped in front of quite a steep cliff.
I could see a lake and a hut at the bottom. The proposed track was moving forward persistently.
And there was a goat track. But it was clearly one way only (for wheeled vehicles).

I went on walking reconnaissance.

At the bottom I found a waterfall and a ford, which required a strong hand of a friend, or better two of them.







“Bypass” group stuck as well. At this moment our space trooper snatched a prisoner and extorted the secret of the right way.

My return was even more enchanting. While crossing the tiny brook my bike fell off a cliff,
taking me with it. It was ten meters of rocky scree to the footpath. Fern-like plants with size of Andrew.
I’m unloading, pushing, falling, lifting, pushing, dragging ... Finally I managed to get on the footpath by traverse.
Using radio direction finding I found meeting point and we finally moved in the right direction.







We crossed this river 15 times and each next ford was deeper and deeper.





Everyone was elated and, dare I say it, joyful.





Andrew Big said that those who truly want to learn Latin dances, well, like Paso doble,
need to train coordination and balance. You can’t find better place than a mountain stream.
Don’t argue with Big! Well, something like that.









We came to maral farm (Siberian deer). The offer to taste the meat was handy. So it will be a rest day.
Valera was glad to us, and we were glad not to go anywhere - this is a consensus!



Che was cold and when he heard that we would not go, he immediately took a warm collar out of his bag.



Shouting ‘I’m the most tired today’ A_Big ate with unwashed hands almost the entire bowl of delicious moral meat,
while others waited for cutlery. For which he was smacked by Che.





Grom eats vegetarian strawberry jam



Marals glanced at our feast with caution. And when Che turned on music set they run away.







A rest day is good for repairing. Abbott nicknamed "half the bucket" made the visor!
Our stocks of firewater decreased significantly and rain and warm stove helped it. The rest day is a good day!

Suddenly it was morning in my head. Those who met this phenomenon will immediately understand
that the rest day has been used for the benefit of the soul, but was harmful to the body.

We found out that some of the fords we can try to get around by "PRITOR" as the locals call
the horse trail along the rocky banks of the river.

Pritor’s were sometimes in fair condition, but there were a couple of areas where debris
flows came down to the trail and turned it from uncomfortable to a really scary path!



Highway to the first ford was like five kilometers of hellish mess of mud, streams, boulders,
grass and ruts. Our load prevents to go fast and slowly shake out all the innards. That was a warm-up.

The first ford made us puzzled. Armed with a stick and wrapped with a rope I crossed to the other side.
But how to move the bike remained a mystery.

I trod the exit path from the river and walked up to the second ford – it has not become easier.

The same time A_Big and Che groped about ‘pritor’ on the rocky bank.

While we dealt with ropes Pate performed snow leopard jump with immersion into an icy river.

We lost the free end of the rope and Pate caught it like spiderman. And we had to wring out him.



We decide collegially to go by ‘pritor’. There were places where we had to manually adjust the trajectory.



An awkward situation: I was trailing. Side bag catches a snag in the grass.
The result is invigorating – I flew off a cliff. Luckily I hooked for another snag.

Especially on the trail here and there's not a train, only help in a pinch. You can’t go to and fro on a path.
And the help is only in a pinch. So I was taking it out for twenty minutes.



Do you see the road? The correct answer is NO. Glacier sweeps everything indiscriminately on its way.



An attempt number five. You have to make a standing jump to a diagonal wall on the wet grass.
Welcome to rusian romaniacs.



Another special avalanche stage.



Suddenly, out of nowhere - there is ****** BRIDGE! That's good luck, this is a godsend!
This means we have 2-3 kilometers walk without bathing in ice water.



But every land segment comes to an end. And that means ‘Be nice! Come into ice water up to the balls!’

If you manage to suck the balls into the body, the ford can be 5 cm deeper.



When you’ve crossed yourself, come back and help to a friend.







Sometimes we’re able to rest on the river pebble, to think about eternity, to shoot multiseries blockbuster.



We used the second Valera’s prompt! A disguised bridge in a hundred meters from the ford.



Grom is thinking about XR250



And there is raging Altai nature all around. Mushrooms do not want to release us from the forest!





And this rocky ledge will go down in history of astronautics as a springboard for spacewalks without a spacesuit.
Returning from exploration on someone else manned module Andrew did not consider the features and
performance characteristics. The result was quite enchanting.









The second attempt to take the rock also failed.

We unwound the space rope and having applied artiodactyls member’s force we climbed on trail.

A_Big shows us the tong to confirm that it is not like he ate blueberries around the corner,
but he really went to scout inaccessible asteroids nebula.



Here came good news. GAZ-66 moved out of the village to help us. Valera asked for us.
We could pass the remaining two fords by ‘pritors’ within two days.
Several rocky landslides completely mixed the existing trail.





In the rush of handling we missed A_Big’s cosmological sneakers, but this is another story.
Radio contact is stable. GAZ-66 drowned in the ford. Transportation of the second group is postponed indefinitely.
Burner, stew, pasta – we are waiting for the shuttle. Evening.

The ride in the body of GAZ-66 with not fixed motorcycles is probably scarier than many things on earth.



Terekta village. The solid earth road under the wheels – it’s fantastic!

The wheels are spinning toward Tungur. We’re turning our heads from side to side.







We arrived to Tungur at dusk and captured a comfortable bridgehead with bath and shower.
Life is getting better.

Usually, about now, a Swiss guy riding a bicycle on a round the world trip appears and offers up some words of wisdom for the "road" ahead.
